>>> finally, i haven't been around a ton of newborns, but i have watched enough movies to know there can be a lot of crying, a lot of moodiness. this little guy is in a league of his own. he is an orangutan at the atlanta zoo . look at that face. after a team of vets performed a c-section on his mom over a month ago, he has been taken care of by the team at the zoo. he gets daily visits to see his mom. not living permanently together. it's an interesting arrangement. cutie patootie, they have yet to name the baby.

>> unless he goes on to play football, oh, cutie patootie down the middle.

>> don't like the sound. harrison. which you suggested yesterday.
